NASCAR At Atlanta: Entry Lists, Schedules, And TV Information For All Three Races

Hopefully you're among the thousands of fans who'll be making the trek to the Atlanta Motor Speedway for some racing action this weekend, but if you aren't, you'll still be able to catch all the action on TV.

First up, to know who will be racing - or, in some cases, just trying to qualify - here are the entry lists for Friday's Good Sam RV Insurance 200, Saturday's Great Clips 300, and Sunday's Advocare 500. Among the highlights are Sprint Cup stars Clint Bowyer, Kyle Busch, and Ryan Newman racing in Friday's Camping World Truck Series race - with Newman's Turner Motorsports Chevrolet paying tribute to the late Beau Slocumb, a racer from Macon who died of cancer earlier this year - and 2011 Daytona 500 champion Trevor Bayne being among the competitors in Saturday's Nationwide race. Bayne is not entered in the Advocare 500, so the Great Clips 300 will be local fans' one shot to see the youngest-ever winner of the Great American Race on-track this weekend.

On-track action kicks off Friday morning and doesn't end until the checkered flag falls Sunday night, so here is the schedule for all three days of racing at the Atlanta Motor Speeddway and applicable TV times and stations for those of you watching from home, courtesy of AtlantaMotorSpeedway.com.
